i'm in the minority i guess b/c i actually enjoy this Star a lot; it's really unique. and i'm not always as about these mellow renditions as i am the really intense ones that hold my attention better.

i really like your list of the top versions LiA. of course, i can expect no less for someone who knows their shit as well as you..;)

i myself am not very familiar with 7/18...i just got that show recently. but i hear it's really awesome. i guess i've got listening to do too!

I guess I felt this Star was rather uncohesive and sort of drifted apart. I do like the feedback after the verse, and the melodic jam when the band returns after that half-assed Philo Stomp. But I like other versions so much better.

On the other hand, the Truckin>Dark Star>Comes a Time from 7/18/72 is something special.

Ha "half assed Philo Stomp." That's kinda how I always felt about that one, too.
